Airbus Helicopters is constantly developing the network of simulator centres that supports its range of civil and military rotorcraft – providing advanced training solutions that combine the benefits of actual flight and the safety of simulation tools.
Many of our training academies around the world are equipped with state-of-the art Full-Flight Simulators (FFS) or Flight Training Devices (FTD) to ensure the most realistic mission environment without compromising the safety of participants and without using aircraft dedicated to commercial or military missions.
Currently, 24 FFS and FTD are positioned in our training academies and are used by our network. Airbus Helicopters annually delivers more than 30,000 training hours in type rating, mission-related, recurrent, or more specific courses. Its facilities benefit from the highest standards and are fully compliant with the latest certifications.
